Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: RealPlayer will not download shows

I,ve got some hd issues as well, one thing I figured out though is once the show(s) is finished downloading I let it seed to a ratio of about 1.5:1 then because of space on my drive its time to give it a home in my archive. I purchased a few CD-RW disc and after burning the lossy to disc I take and burn the show to the RW disc then rerip the show to my hd using 320 kbs MP3, after that I erase the RW and then place the lossy data on a 4.7 gb DVD and then remove the file from my hd, If somthing should happen to my harddrive or the audio disc I have a backup for my files and by reripping the show to 320kbs MP3 Ive reduced the file by over two thirds or more. kind of a pain but these shows are priceless in my eyes and want to make sure 1) I can enjoy it and 2) I can safegaurd it. As much as I would like to keep and seed everything I dl its just not possible. If there is something I have that needs further seeding I have the data to upload.

sounds like a labor of love

I listen mostly while working so 99% of what I listen to I simply stream from archive. I have alot of the good AUDs burned to disc for the car player
I also have alot of great discs sent to me by the especially generous folks here on the forum!!

I tend to give away lots of the AUD copies of what I do have so am constantly buying blanks and burning new copies.
